We were lucky enough to have a private guide who took us to the much quieter areas of Venice...Cannaregio being the first one. It was amazing the lose the crowds and in some areas it was completely devoid of people. If you want to enjoy...More
The location of our apartment for our stay in Venice was in Cannaregio. There are many shops and restaurants in this area and getting around is easy. Not far is the train station and drop off point for taxis to and from the airport.
Our family of 4 stayed in Cannaregio for 4 days. It really felt like Home to us. Plenty of restaurants, touristic enough for our needs, but away from the tourist crowds. Easy access to every place by Vaporetto with plenty of stops. We bought the...More
Here you have the original ghetto where Jews had to live a few centuries ago and that was the origin of the word ghetto. This is an area in Venice that is not so jam packed with people (mainly tourists who are elsewhere).
The real surprise in Trip Adviser’s Cannaregio email was your initial photo, which we immediately recognized as the Trattoria Misericordia, one of our favorite restaurants in Venice. My wife and I had lunch there just a few weeks ago during the same trip we stopped...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

Hi. I’ve been in Venice two months ago and also stayed in Cannaregio . The best thing of staying there is that you are 5m on foot from the Fondamenta nove, where you can board in a boat that can take you to the islands. I’ve prefered taking all day, because alilaguna visits to Burano, Murano and Torcello are too quick! We ‘ve stayed all morning in Burano and had lunch there.

One more thought. For Christmas eve it may be very advisable to reserve a dinner in a restaurant (and see through internet if it is open). Otherwise it may happen that you will not find any place available. All can be fully... More

Hi Thanks for your question. Venice is not cheap but there are ways to save money. Walk everywhere as it is compact city and you miss a lot by going by boat. Eat in the smaller tucked away restaurants. Use the buses from the airport instead of taxis or boats. Buy snacks such as sandwiches from snack bars. Have a great time but be very wary of pickpockets in the airport. If you think you will need any money get it out of your wallet on the plane then safely put it away.
